Kia set for triple unveiling

Kia Motors will unveil three exciting vehicles at the 77th Salon de l'Automobiles in Geneva on 6th March.

All three will show how far Kia has come in recent times and give a clear vision of the near and maybe not too distant future.

The new cee'd SW will be seen for the first time in final production-ready form. The unique European designed and built estate version of the cee'd will be on sale in the UK in the autumn.

Also on display will be a new vision for the future of clean motoring from Kia. The Rio Hybrid uses a 1.4-litre 90 PS petrol engine mated to a compact 12 kW synchronised electric motor.

In one of the most ambitious research and development exercises Kia has ever undertaken almost 4,000 Rio Hybrid vehicles will hit the road supporting the Korean Ministry of the Environment with clean transport solutions.

The Hybrid will instantly become part of Korea's largest 'real-world' testing programme to develop clean and efficient hybrid vehicles.

Kia will also be unveiling a striking new concept car, which will indicate the options open to its European design and manufacturing bases.
